Some time ago, in February, I approached Your Wardrobe Unlock’d and
asked if they might be interested in two articles about 17th century
hair and makeup. To my delighted surprise they were and the first article went
live today. I feel quite exited, I can tell you! The subject is the woman’s
hairstyle that was popular for the whole mid-part of the 17th
century where the hair was put in a chignon in the back and the side hair was
hanging down around the ears. In my article I go through the key variations of
it and also how to set and style a wig. The next article that will be up next
month, is about makeup during the same period.
